NZBMatrix Closed...

The End...

It is with our regret to announce that NZBMATRIX has closed.

We have had to make this decision due to a very large takedown request from a company called Wiggin LLC. These represent the following: Federation Against Copyright Theft Limited ("FACT"), Paramount Home Entertainment International Limited; Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Limited; The Walt Disney Company Limited; Twentieth Century Fox Film Company Limited; Universal Pictures (UK) Limited; Warner Bros. Entertainment UK Limited.

As everyone is aware we are DMCA/Takedown notice compliant, and always have been.
Once this notice is completed we are left with an impossible task of policing our indexing bots. Even then it won't stop there, there will be follow-up notices etc.

Coupled with this is problems with payment providers, we have been through pretty much everyone out there, in the end they all pull out.
There are massive server/bandwidth costs to pay, with the payments in-stability this is a very hard task.

NZBMATRIX has never been the subject of any legal issues or threats.

Also the Usenet Indexing scene is going through some changes, with content being removed from pretty much every provider its making the existence of an indexer irrelevant if the content does not even exists anymore.

So it's time for us to bow out...
Seems Usenet as a whole is in trouble.

Any thoughts/advice from other Newsgroup users?

They are not the only ones that got shut down. Newzbin2 also shut down this weekend.

really puts a hurtin' on anyone that uses Usenet to keep up with TV Shows and the like.\


And as for advice, run your own Newznab server. You will likely have to pay for the plus version as it comes with all the regex expressions needed to "do its thing." You might be able to do the regex yourself... but you will likely spend more than $16 worth of your time trying to figure it out.
